FSU & UF Crib Quilt

Share

Patti Spooner covered the field with this winning crib quilt for a little one whose parents pull for different teams!  The pattern has a neat gradient effect that ties the Seminole garnet to the Gator blue.  The black sashing really frames the colors and just makes them pop!  The quilt is backed with our Tilt-A-Whirl Natural quilt backing and filled with Hobbs Heirloom 80/20 batting (not too heavy but still nice & warm).  I quilted it in Swirls and Stars then did the binding in black to match.  This quilt is a winner wither way!  🙂

Football Quilt!

Share

Patsy Willis made this great football quilt for her grandson and asked me to quilt it for her.  The quilt features two college teams, Florida State and the University of Florida along with two pro teams the Tampa Bay Bucs and the New Orleans Saints.  The footballs are sewed into the quilt top rather than being appliquéd on.  It’s even backed with a fabric print that is all footballs too!  It has our soft Hobbs Heirloom batting inside and I stipple quilted it so as not to take away from the incredible footballs she made for the top.  First downs to touchdowns, Patsy did a wonderful job with this quilt!  🙂

Football Sweatshirt Quilt

Share

Diane McCombs asked me to make this quilt as a Christmas present for her husband.  It’s made from sweatshirts that the kids in his Sunday School class brought back from college and gave him over the years.  The fabric used in the quilt  including the White Tone on Tone Circles, Red Deck The Halls, Footballs, Black Dream Cotton and the Quilters Blenders Dark Green quilt backing is all from our shop.  I quilted it in Footballs & Helmets.  A great tribute!
